The most difficult thing when you understand the importance of eliminating certain foods from your meals is to know what can be done gradually or not.

Too often, I have to explain to someone suffering from a variety of physical or emotional problems that what they think they know, may not be helping them.

For example, I have among my clients, naturopaths who realize that they are still becoming sick even after following all the official teachings from books!

And then there are all the others… who are probably lost as to what is happening to them.

They are tired, do not know if they’re eating right, have doubts… all they can be sure about is that they’re doing something wrong, but can’t quite put their finger on it.

What they have in common: not being able to say no to milk, cheese and bread, chocolate, ice cream etc …

They only know that they’re not allergic. So, what’s wrong?

I’ll tell them: you probably suffer from a sensitivity to milk. I explain the difference between sensitivities and intolerances, or even why they are not allergies.

But it happens that everything is linked!

So, let’s finally clear up the subject.

 

Eliminating milk products from your diet

 Today, there are plenty of reasons not to reach for products made from cow’s milk, because finding raw milk, from happy grass-fed cows, has become a luxury. Pasteurized or worse, homogenized milk is no longer milk: it is a processed product and your body will fight it like any other product it does not recognize.

The dubious liquid that we are putting at our disposal today is a sham, and I am not the only one to say it.

If you want to enjoy cow’s or goat’s milk, choose whole and raw. Same for cream, yogurts and butter. Whole, and raw.

 

The sensitivities measured in IgG response, are chronic

 They are not easy to detect and appear in a subtle way, so often not identified (or investigated) by doctors.

And yet, they are associated with chronic inflammation of the digestive system and its multiple consequences, including the hyper-permeable bowel.

In this case too, saying “no” to dairy is almost impossible.

A good indicator to look out for that there is sensitivity to a food are the cravings that we feel.

This is even more true with regard to dairy (as it is with sugar and gluten): dairy addiction can be compared to an opiate addiction, and the withdrawal symptoms are very prominent. Even if they are not convulsions, the symptoms can create real functional problems and lead the way for acute allergies to be potentially fatal.

 

Be that as it may, the symptoms are debilitating

Here is an example from a real case study:

This is a 12-year-old boy who suffers from ADHD, nothing is helping him.

He can’t concentrate and reacts violently to his classmates, is irritable and depressed. On the other hand, his relations with his parents are perfect.

During various tests, we discover obvious signs of disorders with the digestive system, a sensitivity to many foods and resistance to many food choices. Anterolab test reveals sensitivity to casein and gluten.

The parents had already eliminated gluten from their son’s diet, but they had kept milk, simply because his withdrawal symptoms were too much: thus, increasing his degressive symptoms (depression, behavior, irritability, nervous shocks).

The entire protocol of elimination had not worked ironically because of their compassion for their son who was suffering so much from these eliminations, they had kept milk in his life.

 

When to change means “to change everything at once”!

It’s true that it is painful to go completely cold turkey, especially in your diet! But don’t you think given how painful going cold turkey on certain foods is, why not just do them all at once and be done with it sooner?

It’s true that in terms of drugs and alcohol, you would tapper off slowly before the final cut. But when it comes to food, there’s no time for halfway.

Rip your suffering from the roots, this by getting rid of gluten, casein, and sugar. Shorten the process.

There are supplements to make things easier (I talk about it in Your Anti-Candida Aromatic Program) and most importantly, there are essential oils.

Change is easier with a little aromatherapy

Here is a blend of essential oils that perfectly complements a diet change to eliminate casein, gluten and sugar.

This aromatic blend for local application helps stabilize blood sugar while supporting energy, fighting inflammation, boosting morale, and calming the nervous system.

It is a mixture to massage on the forearms, from the inside of the wrists to the inside of the elbow, at least twice a day.
